Spurs and Jose Mourinho in desperate need of arresting a slide that has all but extinguished their top-four hopes for the season.
A 2-0 loss at West Ham was their fifth in six Premier League games, but look ahead to today’s game against Burnley, followed by matches with Fulham and Crystal Palace before another north London derby, as the chance to get back on track.
Gareth Bale could be key to any revival, having almost inspired a second-half comeback against the Hammers before coming on and scoring a cracker within minutes during their midweek Europa League tie, after appearing to get back to full fitness for the first time since his summer return on loan.
Burnley have come out of four big relegation battles unbeaten and in a confident mood – can they pile further misery on Spurs?

Just like on Wednesday night against Wolfsberger, it felt inevitable that Gareth Bale would score from that position.
He looks full of confidence and is rolling back the years here.
55min: Bale gets his second of the game!
53min: Ndombele down after a tangle with Westwood, who is obviously fine now. A shriek of pain on the turn, but looks OK to continue.
50min: Westwood now needs some attention after going down. A more tame start to this half.
49min: Sanchez hits the deck after colliding with Vydra. Otherwise, Spurs managing Burnley well.
46min: …and we’re back under way.
Spurs unchanged at the break so Bale as shaken off that knock.
48min: There’s the whistle.
46min: Two minutes added on.
